Eliza Griswold: The Tenth Parallel
More than half of the world’s 1.3 billion Muslims, and 60% of the world’s Christians, live along the ‘tenth parallel’. This latitudinal line, spanning the globe ten degrees north of the equator, is the subject of Eliza Griswold’s startling new book, an unflinching investigation of the jagged ideological and geographical faultline where Christianity and Islam meet. Published widely both as a journalist and a prize-winning poet, Griswold is joined by fellow journalist Rafael Epstein in a discussion about some of the world’s most fascinating – and divided – societies.
